  • Description

This one is a beautiful telephone. Discounted due to Non GPO markings and no base. Handset marked ATM P &T 606

Genuine 1950s telephone.


This is one of around 25 telephones I bought 7 years ago. They were restored and ready to to be installed in a large mansion house probably around 30 years ago. They were found in the cellar having never been used and were sold on to me as a batch. This one has handset markings P&T ATM 606 and has a genuine GPO No 26 bell set internals with a brand new perfect bell set cover. I thought I had sold them all but came across the last nine of which I have now stripped cleaned, polished and tested ready for sale. They were originally restored without bases and the handsets are Ericsson,Siemens and P&T. The handset cord is a round braided cord as fitted to Siemens and GEC models. The Bakelite is very good quality and has polished up to a first class shine. I noted the dials must have been new old stock as they are perfect. If you want to buy a very good Bakelite telephone from the 1950s then this is your chance to buy at a reasonable price. They are restored to the same degree with an electronic microphone and a lifetime of ownership guarantee but the feet are screwed directly to the base and the handset is the same model and period. I can make a dial label with your information at no extra charge. see pictures of this actual telephone below.
